Olivia Newton-John, like the rest of us, is hoping 2021 will be a better year than this one.
"I just want to wish you all the happiest and healthiest holiday season," the singer and actress, 72, said in a holiday video message shared Friday to Instagram. "I hope that 2021 brings us new things and better news. Just keep your spirits up and think positive thoughts. We'll get through this. This too will pass. Much love to you all."
Newton-John, who has battled cancer three times over three decades, has been open with the public about her health struggles.
In 1992, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. After a car accident in 2013, doctors found cancer in her shoulder. In 2018, the "Physical" songstress revealed her Stage 4 breast cancer had spread to her back with a tumor at the base of her spine.
Good news in 2020? Yes, it's true! Here are 100 positive things that happened this year.
In a TV appearance last February, Newton-John said she was doing "really well" and said she believed she no longer had Stage 4 cancer.
"I believe your belief system is part of the healing," she said on the Australian talk show "The Project." "At my last MRI, which is an exam where they look inside, things are shrinking, going away, staying the same, and I'm living well with it and I'm feeling great."
She announced in October the establishment of the Olivia Newton-John Foundation, an organization dedicated to raising money to support research for "kinder and more effective ways of preventing, treating and curing all cancers, including plant medicine and other therapies," as she shared with followers.
Newton-John has also sought to spread positivity this year by sharing inspirational quotes from her niece, poet Fiona Goldsmith.
"It's OK to feel challenged by the constant and relentless," read one Instagram post Newton-John shared in October. "But nature reminds us in explosive flowering of spring that change is guaranteed and we will rise again."
